Panniers

Panniers

Initially we discussed making a crinoline but after doing much research I decided to discuss with my tutor the prospect of making Panniers or pocket hoops as they are also known, as they were frequently worn in the period I am researching. They created a slightly different shape to the previous crinolines or farthingales. I will be making these before draping my skirt fabric.
